+WebUpd8 have released an article about the Ubuntu MATE 14.04 release.
Because Ubuntu MATE 14.10 was the first Ubuntu MATE release and it's supported for only 9 months, the Ubuntu MATE team released Ubuntu...

Please consider to include  an application for managing partitions and external USB media. I suggest gnome-disk-utility

I've just tested it and, right now at least, gnome-disk-utility is an option. Let's put it to a vote 😊

Tips and Tricks  - 
 
Do you want great, amazing and unnecessary desktop effects?
Install Compiz!
How?
Follow the steps below, dude!

STEP 1 ) INSTALL

If you have  synaptic, open it and search  compiz. After search result, check the following items:
  compiz
  compiz-plugins
  compiz-plugins-default
  compiz-plugins-extra-main
  compiz-plugins-main-default-extra
  compizconfig-settings-manager

Apply the changes and close synaptic

If you not installed synaptic, can istall compiz from terminal:

sudo apt-get install compiz compiz-plugins compiz-plugins-default compiz-plugins-extra-main compiz-plugins-main-default-extra compizconfig-settings-manager

STEP 2 ) CONFIGURE

Launch CCSM (CompizConfig Settings Manager) put in  your System>Preferences menù

Check your favorite plugins and configure it by clicking on.

Particular attention to Window Decoration  plugin.
if you want to use it with your favorite gtk theme (es. Ambiance), you need to work through dconf editor.

Launch dconf Editor to Applications>System Tools menù.

Go to org>gnome>desktop>wm>preferences an change the default theme name with your preferred theme name.
If it is compatible, the change will be immediate.

ATTENTION!!!Same plugins not working well ( es. 3d Windows). Testing carefully!


STEP 3) RUN

Open terminal, type

compiz --replace

and press enter.

if everything works fine you can put compiz on startup.
Launch Startup Application to System>Preferences menù.
 Click Add and create a new voice:
Name: Compiz
Command: compiz --replace
Clic Add, close all application and reboot your system.
Now Compiz running at startup!



I hope this guide will be useful and I apologize for my horrible English!

Why language-selector-gnome is not present?
I think it is a useful tool and in all releases of Ubuntu is installed by default..or not?
